This animation of Vesta is made from images taken with Dawn's framing camera. Many of the images were taken at different viewing angles to provide stereo for use in determining the topography.Video from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory California Institute of Technology

We have found samples of Vesta from meteorites found here on Earth, including Howardites, Eucrites, Diogenites and others.
